RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE 1. Feeling of Absolute dependence by Schleirmacher * What I understand in Schleirmacher’s feeling of Absolute dependence is it’s our God-consciousness that arises from self-consciousness for being piety. It is our “utang na loob”, in this case it is a consciousness of the one to whom we are dependent—God. We have always this feeling of dependency that we owe our life to God. It is when we recognize the presence of God in ourselves, it also that start for us feel and practice religious experience.

Like for example, whenever I achieve an accomplishment or a goal, I always make sure that I will go to church and thanked God for it. I have this feeling that I should thank Him for guiding me and helping me to achieve such success. It shows that i am self-conscious about the presence of God to me.

2. Mysterious Tremendum et Fascinans by Rudolf Otto * The Mysterious Tremendum et Fascinan by Otto is his concept of Numinous or numen or divine. It is composed of three parts, such as: Mysterious/Mysterium is the experience of wholly other, or the blank wonder. Next is the Tremendum which is the awefulness-it is the terror or unapproachability “wrath of God”, overpoweringness as the sense of one’s own nothingness in contrast to its power, the creature-feeling or the sense of dependence, and energy, the vitality and will which explain that the world is full of energy because of God. And the Fascinans, it is the potent charm, the attractiveness in spite of fear or terror.
For Otto, it is his Idea of Creature, that indeed our life is composed of the three elements of Numinous, where there are always wonder of what is to come, there is always terror and fear for something and there is always the joy after the fear because of overcoming such terror. 3.

Philo Finals 2nd katamaran, na kung saan hindi mo na pinapansin ang ibang paraan dahil epektibo ang paraan na ginamit mo. Minsan, nalilito tayo, kung kaya’t kailangan natin ng gabay o tulong ng iba. May 3 conditions bago mapagkatiwalaan ang isang tao: 1. Marunong magmasid/umunawa-kailangan eksperto sa larangan na iyon. Hal, sa pagpapaturo ng accounting-hindi ka magpapaturo sa taong bumabagsak din, nagpapaturo ka sa yung naka-A o magpapatutor ka. 2. Marunong magbigay ng kaalaman-dapat marunong siyang magturo. Hindi sapat na eksperto siya sa larangan na iyon. Hal, yung eco prof ko – magaling na economist, ngunit hindi magaling magturo. 3. Makatotohanan/di nagsisinungaling. Hal. Marco, dahil palagi akong ginagago, kapag sasabihin niya na freecut yung philo bukas, magiisip ako kung totoo o hindi. Ngunit sa huli, ikaw lamang ang pwedeng tumingin, walang pwede tumingin para sayo. Sa philosophy, ang philein ay ang kilos, habang ang Sophia ay ang karunungan. Ang philosophy ay ang kilos ng pagmamahal para sa karunungan, upang malaman mo ito, magbabasa ka, manunuod, ngunit kailangan din itong gawin. Kapag nasabi na ang lahat ng nasabi, ang importante ay ang hindi nasabi. Hal, sa orals.

...Geofrey L. Jorge November 19, 2012 PH 102 – U Isa sa mga matinding problema na hinaharap ng ating bansa ay ang kahirapan. Mula pa noon hanggang ngayon, patuloy pa rin tayong naghahanap ng solusyon upang mawakasan ang kahirapan sa bansa. Kung titingnan, marami sa atin ang magsasabi na ang kahirapan ay ang kakulangan sa pangangailangang pinansyal na bunga ng kawalan ng edukasyon, trabaho o di kaya’y kakulangan at kurapsyon ng gobyerno. Subalit ano nga ba ang kahirapan? Bigyan natin ng depenisyon ang kahirapan sa pamamagitan sa pagtingin sa konsepto pagpapatupad ng tao sa kanyang sarili. Masasabi natin na naipapatupad ng tao ang kanyang sarili batay sa kanyang katwiran. Kumikilos ang tao ayon sa mga bagay na nakikita at nauunawaan niya bilang tama at nararapat. Kaya naman laging kumikilos ang tao ayon sa kanyang katwiran. Ang katwiran ay binabalangkas ng metis o kaisipan at ordo amoris o ang sistema ng pagpapahalaga. Ang metis ay tumutukoy sa praktikal at teoretikal na kaalaman o kaisipan ng tao mula sa komunidad kung saan patuloy na nagtatalaban sa likas at makataong mundo. Tinutukoy naman ng ordo amoris o sistema ng halaga ang kaayusan ng kalooban o ng puso na namamayani sa pagkutob ng tao sa halaga. At dahil dito, binabalangkas nito ang kakayahan niyang makilala ang halagang dala ng ibang mga bagay. Mula dito, kumikilos siya sa mundo at nakikitagpo sa katalagahan kung saan nababalangkas ang kanyang pag-uunawa sa mabuti at nararapat na bumabalangkas sa kanyang......

...1. Explain why the task of philosophy is to search for meaning. In my opinion, Philosophy was created because many people today are searching for the meaning in their lives. We have a lot of questions like ‘Why I am here? Who am I?, ’ etc. Most of us are seeking for the correct answers on questions on our daily life. The universities or schools enables students to openly explore and learn, but still, it is not enough to fulfil or answer our questions, so that’s why philosophy was created and its main task is to search for the meaning, philosophy can answer our questions in many possible ways. 2. Why is philosophy important to human development and existence? I think that philosophy is important to human development because it can be served as a guide for us on our daily life because philosophy can fulfil our needs for information and philosophy can enhance our knowledge. I think that if philosophy not exists, cell phones, laptops, and other gadgets also not exists. So that’s why philosophy is important to human development and existence. Comparative Analysis - Relate Philosophy with the following: a. Science They are both trying to find answers about life that’s why philosophy and science are related to each other. I think that science is on fact, while philosophy is based on people's beliefs or ways of thinking. In addition, science has many theories, theories that seeks truths and answers like philosophy. b. History I think that history and......

...1. Theory of Duty by Immanuel Kant is one of the examples of ethical theories. Theory of duty is commonly defined as one’s moral obligation. Duty should not be influenced by outside motivation but that duty is an obligation that one performs because they ought to and not because of any personal interest or benefit. For example, it is our duty and right to participate in political exercises such as election because we ought to. We have the duty and responsibility to select our leaders. The kind of political leader that we have reflects the kind of electorate we have. We vote during election because it is our duty and not because we are forced to or given promises and/or money. 2. Empiricism and Idealism are complicated concepts in Philosophy so this is a broad description. Idealism is the knowledge that comes from the subject. It also emphasizes the pre-eminent importance of mind, soul and spirit. Idealism is the category of philosophical systems that claim reality is dependent upon the mind rather than independent of the mind. Extreme versions of Idealism deny that any 'world' exists outside of our minds.  It is a view that stresses to role the ideal or the spiritual in the interpretation of experience. Idealism is a search for Absolute Truth. It assumes that there is a design and purpose to the universe and the human mind, and by discovering this purpose they can understand everything. While Empiricism asserts that the truth comes from experience. It also......

...Moral Issues in Business Chapter Two Normative Theories of Ethics Consequentialist Theories • Egoism - Adam Smith • Egoism is a consequentialist theory. What matters for egoists is the consequences of their actions for themselves. • • Utilitarianism - Bentham and Mill o Utilitarianism is a consequentialist theory. Right and wrong depends on the consequences of one’s actions for everyone who might be affected by them. Jeremy Bentham • Bentham was a hedonist. He believed that happiness was a matter of more pleasure and less pain. • Bentham thought you could assign pleasure points to an action according to the following categories: o Intensity: How intense is the pleasure? o Duration: How long will it last? o Certainty: How sure are you that the pleasure will occur? o Proximity: How soon will the happiness occur? o Fecundity: How much more pleasure will this lead to? o Purity: How much pain will be mixed with this pleasure? o Extent: How many people will experience the pleasure? Quality vs. Quantity o Bentham: Pushpin is as good as poetry. o Mill: It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied. o Bentham believed that all pleasures should count equally, but Mill believed that humanity would be better off if the intellectual, moral and aesthetic pleasures were more valued. Principle of Utility o The right action is the one that produces the greatest balance of pleasure over pain, or happiness over unhappiness, for everyone affected by that action. o......

...Amber Di Peppe 210178911 Julie Allen 5 April 2010 Critique: Thomas Nagel's Essay Moral Luck Moral philosophers have not acknowledged any connection between luck and morality. In fact, we as humans tend to disregard moral judgment when we are faced with instances of luck. Moral judgment does not just categorize actions as good or bad, this term is indeed applied to a person’s own character. If there are certain circumstances where the person who is being judged is not under control, then the act of judgment is also undermined or the judgment is not reliable in some way. In his essay Moral Luck, Thomas Nagel addresses the issue of why we praise and blame other people for moral reasons. If someone pushes someone out of the way of an oncoming vehicle at the last moment, they are a hero. Likewise, if someone hits someone with their car, they are a careless and evil person. But Nagel argues that there are so many more factors involved in morality and elements that effect moral luck. He defines moral luck as a situation “where a significant aspect of what someone does depends on factors beyond his control, yet we continue to treat him in that respect as an object of moral judgment” (Nagel, 466). People for so long have made judgments about people based on the actions they commit. This appears to be a good idea, because the actions say a lot about the person, presumably. However, they stop thinking about it there and disregard the factors that go into what a person does......

...Aquinas’ Five Ways: Proofs for the Existence of God The first way: The way of MOTION It is certain, and evident to our sense, that in the world some things are in motion. Now whatever is moved is moved by another, for nothing can be moved except it is in potentiality to that towards which it is moved; whereas a thing moves inasmuch as it is in act. For motion is nothing else than the reduction of something from potentiality to actuality. But nothing can be moved from a state of potentiality to actuality, except by something in a state of actuality... it is therefore impossible that in the same respect and in the same way a thing should be both mover and moved i.e. that it should move itself (Aquinas). The second way: The way of CAUSATION The second way is from the nature of efficient cause. In the world of sensible things we find there is an order of efficient causes. There is no case known (neither is it, indeed possible) in which a thing is found to be the efficient cause of itself; for so it would be prior to itself, which is impossible. Now in efficient causes it is not possible to go on to infinity, because in all efficient causes following in order, the first is the cause of the intermediate cause, whether the intermediate cause be several, or one only. Now to take away the cause is to take away the effect. Therefore, if there be no first cause among efficient causes, there will be no ultimate, or intermediate, cause. But if in efficient causes it is......

Philo T Farnsworth

...Philo Taylor Farnsworth Was an American inventor in the early 1900’s and considered the father of television for his invention of what is known as the Electric Television. This invention was used in conjunction with Vladimir K. Zworykin’s Cathode Ray Tube which was used in many common electrical appliances up until the past 15 years in which Transistors and Crystal Displays have become the standard for use in electronics. Farnsworth was born August 19, 1906 near what is now known as Beaver, Utah by Mormon couple  Lewis Edwin Farnsworth and Serena Amanda Bastian who lived in a log cabin up until a small amount of time after Philo’s Birth. In 1918 Philo and his family moved to Rigby, Idaho. Upon to his family’s relocation to Idaho he was pleased to find out that his new home was wired for electricity by what was known as a Delco generator which allowed for energy for farm equipment and lighting. He quickly self-taught himself and learned personal study in mechanical and electrical technology, he would repair the troublesome delcor generator, and upon finding a burned out electric motor among some items discarded by the previous tenants, proceeding to rewind the armature and convert his mother's hand-powered washing machine into an electric-powered one. Philo developed his early interest in electronics after his first telephone conversation with an out-of-state relative and the discovery of a large cache of technology magazines in the attic of the family’s new home, he won a......

... Business Ethics (Supplementary Lecture Notes) Mr. Joel C. Porras “Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actios, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, they beconme your destiny.” ANONYMOUS Preliminary Notions: A. Etymological: The word ethics comes from the Greek word “ethos” ,meaning : custom, a habitual way of acting character, a meaning that the Latin terms “mos” , “moris” also connote. Among the Greeks , “ethics” meant what concerns human conduct/human action. B. Descriptive: Largely a concern of cultural anthropologists and sociologists. Its task is to describe how some person, members of a culture or society address all sorts of moral issues, what customs they have, and so, how they are accustomed to behave. C. Met-ethics: Concerns itself with the meanings of moral terms: like good and bad, right and wrong, duties and rights, etc. Hence the concern is with the understanding of the use of these terms, their logical forms and the objects to which they refer. Sometimes the concern of meta-ethicist is even more fundamental: What is the possibility of moral philosophy. D. Normative: Ethics is normative, not in the way that logic is, namely. With regard to the correctness of our thinking, but with regard to the goodness of our living, the right orientation of our existence. It is a practical science, not simply because it treats human......

Philo Essay

...Philo Essay For my third assignment, I will be discussing my views on personal identity and how the different traits and factors among individuals make us who we are today. So, when it comes to an individual’s personal identity, I think that there are several different traits and factors that make each and every one of us unique and somewhat different from everybody else. While there are some people that have a lot of similarities in common, I don’t think that really determines who you are as a person or your personal identity. I’ll explain to why I think that there is a difference between everybody when it comes to their own personal identity. First of all, I will discuss my view on what I think personal identity is. Everything influences a person’s identity; their families, religion, where they live and even their culture. It is what makes you the person that you are today. Your personal Identity is even based off every decision that you have made in your past or the experiences you have been through. As an individual gets older, every aspect in their life will influence that person’s responsibilities, morals, humor, sports, the music they like and much more. Those are only a few things that make an individual’s true personal identity. I think that personal identity represents who we are as individuals. Everything from the way that we talk, walk, look and what we wear and to how an individual’s environment and surroundings forms them as well. With this said,......

...There are those that would agree with this statement, such as atheists like Hume who would argued that existence can’t be proved using reason as we need both observation and empirical evidence to prove God’s true existence. Others argue that faith doesn’t need logic in order to prove the existence of God, through believing in his existence he exists, alongside knowledge from revelation in the Bible. Kant argues that existence is not a predicate of God, it adds nothing to our knowledge of God, and so we cannot just assume that he exists. It is impossible to compare God to a perfect island, just because he appears to perfect does not mean we can assume he exists; applying logic to a being doesn’t bring it into existence. Others would argue that God’s existence is logically necessary. It could be argued that philosophers like Plato use logic and reason to prove God’s existence for example in the allegory of the cave. Anselm would have disagreed with this statement completely as he clearly thought that God could be proved by logic and reason alone. His ontological argument relies upon using logic as he deducted, he argues that God is, ‘than that which nothing greater can be conceived’ thereby if there is nothing greater than the most Supreme Being conceivable, the most Supreme Being must exist. Thus his entire argument is based upon the foundation of logic in order to prove God’s existence. Similarly Descartes would have also disagreed with this statement as he felt it was as...

...Leander Kinchen CHMN 201 – [C01] 02/23/2015 Spiritual Gifts Paper PART ONE:  What are your top two spiritual gifts?  Do you agree with the results?  Why or why not?  According to the assessment my two dominant spiritual gifts were Administration (23) followed by exhortation (18). I have to say based on the explanations that I agree. I know that God has called me to pastor a ministry one-day and I Currently serve in my local church as a lay minister. I agree with the assessment, as I am usually the first one to organize others to accomplish task and projects and make sure things get completed. I am also looked upon as a motivator at times when we have face challenges in the ministry. I currently serve as the Praise and Worship leader and have often wondered why this exhortative attitude seems to come so naturally. Although I can probably be labeled an introvert, when I am operating in these gift people never seem to notice how terrified I am inwardly. I have always attributed this to God being the one doing it and not myself.   PART TWO:  Specifically, how can you use your gifts at this time?  How might you misuse your gifts?  Be specific.  The gift of administration is most evident when there is a task or project to complete. Whether it's putting together our music ministry or even planning the events for men’s ministry I usually always take the lead and design a plan that will get the job accomplished in the allotted time. Also in the same areas I am usually the......

Philos and Ethics, simplest answer to the temporal order (regularities of succession) which exist throughout space, throughout all time. He argues that it is far simpler than to explain scientific laws as brute fact or random chance. Inference to the best explanation Swinburne argues that, given all the evidence available to us, we can infer (using inductive reasoning) that the best explanation is the existence of God. Challenges to Design Arguments The Scottish philosopher David Hume produced a detailed teleological argument in his book Dialogues concerning natural religion (1779). Note that this was written before Paley’s own version of the argument from design. However, he did this in the fictional voice of Cleanthes, shortly before Philo (another fictional character who echoes the views of Hume himself) outlines for Cleanthes what the flaws are of using the design argument as an argument for the existence of God (especially the God of classical theism). 1. What Cleanthes says     Every aspect of the natural world bears the marks of apparent design and fits together like a machine. For example, the human eye is brilliantly suited to seeing: the lens, cornea and retina seem to have been thought up by a superior intelligence. The design and construction of the eye is more skilful than anything that could have been done with human hands. This creator or designer must have had an intelligence in proportion to the magnitude and grandeur of his work......

...Twentieth Century Philosopher Biography of Jean Paul Sartre University of Phoenix Veronica Byro, Jamie Davis, Janene Long, Michael Menendez, Jorens Pierre PHI/215 October 12, 2011 Kelley Armitage Jean Paul Sartre Jean-Paul Sartre was a French philosopher, novelist, and playwright in the 20th Century. Jean-Paul’s key concepts that compromised his beliefs were known as the best philosophy back in the 20th Century. Jean-Paul believed in individual rights which led to Political Philosophy. Sartre’s was a Marxist that set his political economic theories. Jean-Paul’s main ideas, was that every human being are subject to their own rights and deserve to be free; this enhanced his theories. However, Sartre’s work and beliefs made him best known as an Atheist; a believer of his own thoughts. Mankind is responsible for his own actions, stated by Sartre. The Existentialism Jean-Paul Sartre, took the label that people placed on him and two other philosophers Heidegger and Albert; existentialists. Sartre was the only one out of the three to take to this label, because he felt as if he would then be allowed to define it; this was a step closer to him reaching his dreams in philosophy. The main key concept that was analyzed by Sartre is that existence proceeds essence, basically meaning that all human beings are defined by their own actions. Humans outcome on life are based on the choices that we make and all......
